We are experiencing some significant oil impact, ranging from tarballs to odor, in certain areas across the island. Some stretches of beach are seeing little sign of oil, while others are experiencing greater amounts. Local officials are urging more rapid response times and will continue to be diligent in their efforts to keep our beaches as clean and safe as possible.

The City of Orange Beach is flying double red flags at public beaches. This means waters are closed for swimming or wading.

The Alabama Department of Public Health has a swimming advisory in gulf waters off Gulf Shores, Orange Beach and Fort Morgan, and in bay waters immediately adjacent to Fort Morgan, in Bayou St. John, Terry Cove, Cotton Bayou or Old River. A swimming advisory means that individuals are discouraged from swimming in affected waters. To read advisory information and frequently asked questions, visit the Alabama Department of Public Health website.

The beaches are OPEN and visitors are still welcome to sunbathe and walk the beach, but we strongly suggest they swim in a pool or enjoy our many off-beach activities.
